From cacophony to harmony
Sound is emotions.
Sound is physics.
At Efterklang we approach sound with our hearts and minds.
The urban soundscape is quite similar to a musical composition. Different sources of sound that resemble a music ensemble. However, there’s a problem. Unlike a music ensemble, the city doesn’t sound harmonious. Instead, one instrument, or source of sound, is dominant.
Cars and vehicles are often the solo performer deafening other urban sounds with traffic noise. But what if we could change that? What if we could re-think urban sound planning and instead preserve and highlight sounds that create well-being?
Our vision is to tune the world. And it starts with designing an environment in which unwanted sounds are mitigated and room is created for other sounds to be heard. We approach this task with both heart and mind.
